About Kristen

I am a journalist turned teacher, and I believe I can help any student -- from elementary school through college -- become a more confident reader and writer. I am a certified elementary and middle school teacher with experience teaching basic skills reading, writing and math. Before becoming a teacher, I was a writer and editor at New Jersey's largest daily newspaper for 15 years. I am now a stay-at-home mom, but I would like to continue my passion for education as a tutor. As a teacher and tutor, I feel it's important to determine how a student learns best, and then design tutor sessions to address the student's needs and learning style.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold New Jersey teaching certificates in elementary education (K-5), supplementary education and middle school (6-8) language arts. These can be furnished upon request.

GED

I believe I am qualified to tutor GED students because I am a certified teacher, I hold a bachelor's and a master's degree, and I have 20+ years of working experience.

Praxis

I have tutored students for the Praxis for two years. I have a master's degree in journalism and 18 years of experience as a journalist. I also have seven years of experience as a teacher, including four years in adult education. When I took the Praxis content knowledge exam in 2010, I received an ETS award for scoring in the top 15 percent.
